Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup are a fictional animated trio and titular characters of the 1998 American animated television series The Powerpuff Girls and its reboot. Sadly, the trio were flanderized in the 2016 reboot.

Why These Imposters Are Not The Perfect Little Girls

  1. Cartoon Network did an abrupt voice actor change in them, especially Bubbles, and even in the Latin American Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese dubs.
  2. The Girls were severely flanderized in this incarnation, to the point that they fit more to the Teen Titans Go! versions of the original Teen Titans than the girls' original 1998 counterparts;
    • Blossom is practically nowadays an overreacting, neurotic nerd who suffers from OCD, and is often a stereotypical, bratty, mean-spirited leader.
    • Bubbles is now a "girly", psychotic, annoying, goody-two-shoes crybaby who lacks any real character development.
    • Buttercup is nowadays nothing more than a ridiculous bully (which doesn't stay true to her name) who cares mostly about butt jokes (because her name has "butt" in it) and is practically a stereotypical tomboy. Despite being a tomboy, she is often considered the Butt-Monkey of the group, due to how she is often mistreated by both Blossom and Bubbles. While in the case in the original, it was at least fairly rare; it happens in the majority of this reboot.
    • They are so bad that it even makes their 1998 seasons 5 & 6 counterparts better.
    • Ironically, the makers of the reboot said their intention was to flesh out their personalities, when their aforementioned flanderization above instead does the exact opposite by turning the girls into caricatures of their original 1998 selves.
  3. The girls did a bunch of outdated memes in the first season; most notably when Bubbles said the "No Me Gusta!" meme as seen in "Tiara Trouble", and the Mojo Jojo Meme Maker. Bubbles even said the outdated “OMG! Yaaaas!” phrase.
  4. Two words: Child sexualization. Blossom was given a "love interest" who's rather too old and she's frequently seen having guilty fantasies about said "love interest".
    • Blossom and Bubbles also twerk as seen in "Painbow" (specifically this scene). This was thankfully cut in the Turkish dub of the aforementioned episode. However, this was due to Allegro controlling them.
  5. Their voices are extremely irritating, especially Buttercup's. Their singing is also bad.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The three were at least given some more development, such as giving them new superpowers that allow them to project energy and manipulate it into various entities.
  2. Bubbles and Buttercup are more tolerable in seasons 2 & 3.
  3. They were much better and way more tolerable in the original 1998 series.

Trivia

  • They could possibly be 10 years old as told they had five picture days (picture days happen once a year), yet their appearances haven’t changed.
